Frequently Asked Questions
When do we meet?
From September to March: every Wednesday evening (term time only) from 6pm to 8.30pm at a Leeds City Centre venue.
What performance opportunities are there for members?
Members will perform at concerts and events throughout the year.
In 2016, the Youth Chorus performed Circlesong at the Howard Assembly Room and Sage Gateshead. In June, they had the amazing opportunity of singing with Barry Manilow at Leeds First Direct Arena. In the summer, they also took part in the Aberdeen International Youth Festival with a production of Down in the Valley by Kurt Weil.
How much does it cost?
£50 per term for terms 1 & 2.
£150 for term 3 (subject to change) including all residential activity, rehearsals and performances.
We do not want cost to be a barrier to any potential members, so we offer bursary places to families in challenging circumstance – these bursary places cover the membership fees and also additional expenses that may be associated with taking part. Please contact Opera North Education for more information and to find out if you are eligible, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
